Contributions are cash payments made to a household member from a non-household member.

Countable Income

Use the gross amount of cash received as long as it is greater than $30 per quarter. Contribution income counts as unearned income.


Use the best available income verification. When the contribution is coming from a friend or relative, calling the person to confirm the contribution amount or getting a written statement from the person may be the best available verification.

FACS Coding
